BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - It appears Chris Schmidt will be the next circuit court judge for Harrison, Hancock and Stone Counties. Unofficial results indicate Schmidt received 7,605 votes tonight in the judicial runoff. Robert Fant Walker received 5,005 votes.
They reached the runoff by being the top two finishers in the November 4 general election. Because neither candidate got 50% support that night, the runoff became necessary.
